About Family Dances
The Hillhurst School Council provides funds and volunteers to organize and run two free Family Dances each school year. The first dance is typically held near Hallowe’en in October, and the second dance is held near year’s end. Both are in the evening, usually 6:30-8:30 pm, and we encourage all families and friends to attend. Parents and siblings are most welcome. A DJ is hired to play current hits, and treats will be available for purchase.
A team of dedicated volunteers help make family dances a favourite for all students and families.
A volunteer family dance committee organizes the family dances each year. Determining the theme of the dances and the decorations is a function of the committee.
Other volunteer opportunities include dance set up and take down. Grade 6 students are also invited to volunteer to man the concession for the night in roughly 30-45 minute shifts. A couple of parents are also required in the concession at all times throughout the night.
A huge thanks to all the volunteers and attendees for continuing to make our family dances such fun and memorable events!
